I have been enjoying my University experience so much thus far. The course is interesting and very intellectually stimulating and the lecturers and tutors are supportive. The city is lovely as well and there is always something to do, be it with a society or just on your own. The most important advice I would give someone thinking of studying at the University of Bristol is to make sure they have researched the course they wish to apply for thoroughly and if possible, to visit the city and campus during one of the Open Days. show less
